The Congress is part of Iceland’s chairmanship of the Arctic Council and organized in conjunction with the Arctic Council Ministerial Meeting. The themes of the Congress follow from the Icelandic chairmanship's priorities

  • Arctic Marine Environment - Climate and Green Energy Solutions
  • People and Communities in the Arctic
  • UArctic a platform of joint education and research

The UArctic Congress 2021 brings together institutional leaders, indigenous representatives, academics, scientists and students from around the Circumpolar North and beyond. It is an excellent platform for all UArctic members to engage with each other and promote cooperation in circumpolar science and higher education. Together with partners, policy makers and other actors, the UArctic Congress strives to take the Arctic agenda forward by creating and strengthening collaborations that produce new findings and solutions for the future of the Arctic.
